Iceland Kills Whales, So Anonymous Hackers Shut Down Its Government’s Websites

Anonymous, a loosely associated network of anonymous hackers and hacktivists that recently made the news for attack ISIS’ social media accounts, has entered the animal rights arena in a big way – by attacking Icelandic government websites in response to the country’s illegal whaling practices.

The hackers targeted the websites of every Icelandic ministry except the ministry of welfare, shutting their websites down for 13 hours between November 27th and 28th. Though the International Whaling Commission has established a commercial whaling moratorium, and Iceland is a member of this commission, Icelandic companies continue to engage in commercial whaling. The hacktivists’ video name the endangered fin whale and the Icelandic company Hvalur as two of the main actors in this situation.

Please do the same with Japan and Faroe Islands - countries that continue the whale massacre!

Right. The only government to imprison the bankers, refuse to bail out the banks and tell Brussels where to stick it's Euros.... And THAT'S the government they choose to shut down? Meanwhile in other countries around the world animals are routinely killed by the millions, their governments poison the drinking water, spray the skies, plant GMO and lie to their citizens. Iceland is the only government in the world that comes close to being a democracy and they choose to attack it. Twats. Fackin idiots.

Thank you Anonymous for your anti-whaling campaign. Though true, there are many other Global issues involving these grotesque killings of animals. However, who are we to judge where Anonymous should prioritize their attacks? Are you (Stuart Sampson) doing anything about it? Of course not! Name calling doesn't make YOU a hero! Just appreciate what they are doing as a first step to stop these animal killers!

Вообще очень важно уметь защищать свою страницу, ведь у всех есть свои личные секреты и какие то дела, которые человек не хочет афишировать кому либо конкретному или вообще общественности. А соц. сеть позволяет выборочную доступность информации, потому и так удобны пользователям. Мне после того случая очень помогла статья про взломы страниц ВК https://vk-fans.ru/vk-hacking , где очень доступным языком написано какие реально методы предлагает ВК для защиты моих данных и теперь я точно уверен в их сохранности
